Todays another day
So as it turns out the reason that SS10 has been with us since Friday is becasue a student tested positive at his school and BM thought it best that he not go back just yet. I was told this last night by DH when she called to tell him she would be picking SS up around 3. This now means that DH has to leave work hours early to be home to get his son ready.
I made a remark to DH that he is way to accomodating with BM and that he should have told her to pick up their child at 5. He is constantly accomodating her on pick up and drop off times. Itr clearly states on the agreement that it is 4pm. She is always calling to say she will be there at 5 or 5:30. I told him that he needs to start telling her that if she is going to be any later than 4 she needs to pick him up at our home (it's an hour and 45 minute drive each way, the pick up spot is halfway ) why does he have to always give in. I was told that I don't help matters any with my remarks. I am not one of those people that can keep my comments to myself especially when I feel it is affecting me. We went through a lot of trouble and expense to get this stupid piece of paper the least they can do is follow it. DH has never had an issue telling me when he has something is on his mind whether it has to do with him or not.
Do I really think this is the true reason that SS has now missed 2 days of school, NO I don't. This is the same woman that 3 years ago when SS was 7 and had Impetego waited 7 days before she took him to the doctor, she waited so long in fact it had spead to his eyes and he had pink eye on top of it and then she dropped him off with us for Christmas break becasue it was our holiday. I am finding it hard to believe she has his intrest in mind.
I have tried to disengage but when I do DH calls me on it, yet I am not allowed to make any comments on dear BM. Apparently she is off limits becasue he is tired of hearing them and she is after all still his sons mother. REALLY She is a WTCW.
SS has been up for an hour now and has yet to come downstairs. DH has called to see if he has eaten anything yet and I said no he hasn't. He said can you please go and check on him, I said I am working, I can hear him upstairs he is fine, he is 10 and when he gets hungry he will come down, I'm not catering to him, I didn't do that with my own kids.
